Jiggin'

5 posts in this topic

Well this is the time of year where many anglers favorite approach of jig and minnow combo fishing really works well. My clients and I have been doing well jigging and it is about as much fun as you can have. I have great success with fatheads plus they don’t cost an arm and leg and are readily available. Fish in 15 to 30 feet, walleyes run shallower than saugers. We’ve been fishing a lot of the river and covering ground going well south of the Kinni and to the Bayport area with points in between.

Keep Catchin’

I've found that lighter line gives you the ability to use a lighter jig head and increases sensativity, I use 4lb on my favorite jig rod, seems to be work just fine. Fall fishing is no doubt the best, keep jigging! grin.gif

      A little damp (icy) and chilly this morning.   Had absolutely no gobbling ON the roost this morning.  Strange.   About 7am I had 3 birds gobbling close, behind the blind.  They went back and forth sometime before slinking off the SE.  Now all is quite and cold.   Giving them till 10 then off to work.

      Fishing the Goose Lake chain mostly. May try the night bite, weather permitting.

      I'll be out this wknd and got 3 spots to try out so still debating which one will be the ticket. The past couple weeks I've been getting some while crappie fishing.  Going to be shore fishing so FYI the water level is pretty high right now with all the rain from few weeks ago. A wader would be handy if you have one.  Good luck n be safe out there.

      Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday.  Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers.  Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.
